I have worked with the Cookeville Clean Commission for the past four years as a Conservation Cmmittee Chairperson within the Cookeville Junior Woman's Club. During this time they have promoted a litter free program. They started an adopt a highway program. In conjunction with this program, our club has adopted a downtown park to keep it litter free.
Our club donated money for the Ceal Commission to purchase recyling bins which are used for all major city events. Our club also purchased recycling bins for all the county public schools. The clean Commission is responsible for educating the public, especially the children of our community. A wonderful organization. Bea O'Donnell

As an active member of the Cookeville Junior Womens Club, I am proud that our group supports this most worth while organization. Their work is not only timely, but necessary. Helping them to provide recycling bins in various schools in the area was of great pride to our club, especially since we did the easy part. They continue to be out there reminding the community of the importance of keeping our environment and surroundings clean for future generations. Without thei tireless efforts many would not have the option to do something as simple, yet crucial, as recycling.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

They came to one of our club meetings to request funds to purchase recyling bins. Their budget was limited and needed help to continue their campaign that year.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

No changes, other than to get them more state funding.
